Haley Bonar released ‘Impossible Dream,’ covered The Crystals at Old Granada Studios (watch), touring

Haley Bonar released her new album Impossible Dream back in August, another fine showcase for her dusty, twangy, post-punk-influenced guitar pop (and warm, inviting vocals). It’s a terrific record and you can stream it, and watch videos for two of its singles, below.

She just got back from the UK, where she made her BBC TV debut on Later With Jools Holland. While there she also recorded a session for Low Four, Manchester’s new super-HD live music platform, filmed at famed Old Granada Studios. As part of it, she and her band covered The Crystals’ classic “Then He Kissed Me” as a web exclusive. She puts a dark spin on the song, and you could imagine her performing this version on one of Tony Wilson’s Granada TV shows alongside Joy Division, Gary Numan or The Smiths. That video premieres in this post and you can watch it, along with the whole Low Four session, below, and pictures from the session are in the gallery above.

Haley will be playing North American dates this fall with Minnesotans Night Moves (nothing on the East Coast unfortunately) and will be back in the UK in the spring 2017. All dates are listed, along with the Low Four sessions, Later With Jools Holland appearance, videos and album stream, below.
